    Yes, you can request a 22.3 head, all of the m61/m91 modules will fit in it. It will give you more spill without affecting anything else.

    If you get a super, be cautious because there are rings in the beam when you shine it on an object. This is because of the optic lens of the light. Not sure if this will bother you or not.

    You can look at the pics on the site, it will give you an idea. However, keep in mind the beam isn't as ugly as the picture shows, but its not flawless either.

    On the subject of identifying drop-ins, I remembered that I had some small waterslide decals so, I can now view the name without having to remove the drop-in from the lights.

    Thanks for the info. I think I will get the HD XM-L Neutral with the MD4 body next.

    Dave D, that is a really neat idea. Could you give me the approximate size of those decals, and a good internet source so that I can get small sheets of mostly letters and numerals, without a lot of other extraneous markings? (aircraft roundels, etc.)

    They are my own decals that I produce for the registration numbers on custom 1/43 scale model cars that I build.

    If you PM me you details I'll send you some.

    Well done, Dave.

    I just use a paint pen and write it on the head if needed. For me though, I place my lights where they need to be- so for indoor use, LL lights and for outdoor use, M91T for distance (for now) and M61 219b for mid range. Then carry, back pack and bedside lights with appropriate drop-ins and battery combos for the task.

    Although, I am hurting Gene's feelings right now- using an incan solitaire as my midnight bathroom light and using the Elektro Lumens EDC MC-E with the handgun for those purposes on the bedside table.

    That's genius. I wish they came from Mr. Malkoff with the stickers on. Any issues with heat?

    The genius of Malkoff modules is that the individual products have been optimized for 2xAA/1xCR123, 1xLiIon, and 2xLiIon.

    Which of course means that we have to own one of each at a minimum, lol.

    No issues so far but these are the L and LL modules so not too much heat.

    I have the M91T but that's the only module I have with the TIR lens so that's easily identifiable.

    I marked up these two because they are both in SF G3 hosts so look the same.

    You guys are killling me with all your awesome sounding drop ins. I know once I am done buying all the full light models I want, then I will also need a way to start labeling my drop ins. These Makoffs are addicting like no other light I have ran across.

    It’s because relatively speaking there not all that expensive. You can buy a host and probably 2-3 drop ins for the cost of another good light. And have much more flexibility.

    Then the crazy begins. Stuff like the MD1.5 (from Martin D White) and De-Anodizing.

    I am super happy with my MD 1, MD 1.5, MD2 and MD4 bodies in addition to the MDC bodies that I have. Other than a Neutral super long range thrower, I have alot of situations covered with really 3-4 lights. And then I like to have DUPLICATES. What I love most is that I have alot of OVERLAP in what these lights and drop-ins can do. I really don;t think I have a jack of all trades/ master of none. I think Malkoff gives us good balance right out of the box and some with secondary capabilities. And when you add in the Omnivorous appetites of some of the drop-ins, it gets even better! You guys experimenting with legos and mods have really expanded my capabilities!


    @greats, what are you running in your 1.5?

    If by "P60" you mean "P60-sized-dropins" ... the answer is some do and some don't.

    Fitment is close, but not identical.

    What I wish is that some of Malkoff’s drop ins would fit Surefires. Was hoping to put a m61T in my Z3😭

    Quick question: does Gene offer a single-cell light (chemistry doesn't matter) that doesn't employ PWM?

    Any of the single output models (e.g. E2 Super) or the sort with the high/low ring (e.g. MD2, Hound Dog, Wildcat). I've read that earlier versions of the Wildcat used PWM, but the current v6 does not.

    Edit: Just realized you were asking for single celled lights. This excludes the Wildcat and the Hound Dog XML. However, it will still include the Hound Dog 18650.
